Summary
The history of the banana trade is as politically loaded as that of coffee or oil-and yet it has received scant media attention over the decades. This documentary addresses that information void, exploring links between corporate power, Western governments, and developing nations that are heavily dependent on banana production as a result of colonial and post-colonial influences. Viewers gain an understanding of disputes between U.S.-supported Latin American countries wanting liberalization of European markets and the E.U.-allied ACP (Africa, Caribbean, and Pacific) states, which have traditionally enjoyed tariff preferences. An ideal case study for coursework focusing on the economics of globalization
